Ripley is my creation for Blythe vs Blythe 10: the All Stars Competition. Congratulations to JJ Dollies aka Marieke Geerts on her win for best interpreting “The Future of Blythe.”

So, what is a character from a 42 year old movie doing representing The Future of Blythe? I want to have hope, but it seems more realistic when I envision a future:
….in which we have the technology to explore the galaxy and discover new planets and life forms, but have been pushed to do so after destroying our own planet.
….in which giant corporations act with little regard for the safety and well being of their employees, or of humanity in general.
… which humans have managed to reduce the wonder of scientific exploration to profit and greed.
BUT, also, a future:
….in which the choices of individuals can still impact all of the world, the galaxy even, positively.
….in which there is true gender equality in the workplace and society.
….in which bad ass ladies are the ones saving the day and themselves (and their cat.)
For me, the future of Blythe is art that entertains but can also make us consider our moment in the evolution of human civilization, and dolls representing the tough chicks we will all need to be to fight the forces that wish to deny us that future.
My Ellen Ripley’s base doll is Curly Blue Babe. I’ve given her a reroot of soft Gotland lamb locks, her Nostromo flight suit and underwear, three pairs of my hand painted eye chips, and custom pull charms. She’ll travel in her own space suit carrying case, snuggled in with Jones the cat, her own flame thrower, and unfortunately….a face hugger (because how else would we get to Aliens 2…)

Lil’ Andorian

I’ve been working away on my doll for the Blythe vs Blythe main event, as well as making lots of carrier bags for my vendor showcase on March 25. My favorite way to procrastinate making stuff is by making more stuff, so this little Andorian sprang to life in the midst of it all. 😄💙🌟


Meet Annie, aka Starlight, the newest member of the Superhero crime fighting league The Seven. She’s just a sweet girl from Des Moines, but with super strength and the ability to shoot bolts of lightning from her eyes! Good thing she’s on our side.
Annie is my tribute to Erin Moriarty’s Starlight from the show The Boys. She’s my 94th custom Blythe doll, on a Takara Asha Alvira RBL base, and she’s adoptable from my shop!
